Life is never entirely predictable, especially on Ocracoke Island. Family & friends are frequently stopping by to chat and visit. We were sitting on the porch swing, enjoying the evening breeze, last night when college students, Ben, Paige, & Kyle, came over with stuffed olives and wine. We shared stories and world views until nearly midnight. What a fun time! This morning, as Lou Ann & I were cleaning and organizing the house, a friend from college stopped by. H.B. and I hadn't seen each other for quite some time, so Lou Ann and I put down our brooms and mops and enjoyed an hour of catching up. Maybe H.B. will join us for a Ghost Walk tonight, or even a few hands of poker later on. And we'll be sure to wander down to the docks this weekend and spend some time on his sailboat.
